So, seeing as everyone here is violently opposed, I guess I must've hit some sort of nerve?

Maybe people just really don't like Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me or She's Gonna Blow Your House Down? Maybe people just have a closet thing for Babyface? Maybe Somedays Are Better Than Others ranks higher than it did the last time I checked? Maybe people don't like my description of Stay (I'm sorry, but in my opinion the production on that song could've been so much better without all the flange and phase on the guitar). Or maybe it's just a severe fear of change?

i don't bout everyone else, but i'm not against your idea. it's just that the album as it is has a special place/meaning to me. maybe including HTKMKM and SGBYHD in the standard version would have made it the "rocking" album you seek.

Most people bitch and moan about Babyface and Some Days Are Better Than Others, though. Anyway, thank you for giving me a bit more of a response (than others).

Really? I thought Heaven and Hell was a bit... weak.

u'r welcomed. like i said earlier, when the album 1st came out i hated it and only liked "stay". as time has gone by i've learned to appreciate the album and your right about "stay"(blasphemy). they way they performed it at the dublin ZooTv show was always the way i preferred it.

Well I always thought leaving off Hold me, thrill me... off Zooropa was their biggest mistake. And I don't know that it's a closet thing but yes, I always liked Babyface.

I love Babyface. But as I was writing this I was also trying to think, "Well, wouldn't a couple of these songs fit on Passengers?" and Babyface and Some Days Are Better Than Others seem to me like they'd have fit well.

Zooropa
Babyface
Your Blue Room
Numb
Lemon (Lemonade Mix)
Miss Sarajevo
Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Some Days Are Better Than Others
The First Time
Slow Dancing
Dirty Day (Junk Day)
The Wanderer (Soundtrack Version)

There's your perfect Zooropa. Rocking or not.

Tourist,

Have you heard "Lemon (Lemonade Mix)" or "Stay (Faraway, So Close!) (Soundtrack Version)."

They may help in your quest for a more rocking Zooropa. Misguided as it may be.

Sure. I think I used to have the Lemonade Mix a long time ago, but that was before my hard-drive crashed a couple years ago. My e-mail is ostentatioustourst @ hotmail . com

by the way, to everyone who doesn't like my idea, I really like Zooropa the way it is. It's just my creative mind thinking "What if they'd done it differently...?" And that's what I came up with as "the rocking Zooropa."
